Cool jumps

Some good jumps here, although not RIBs.



I bet the yachtie at 2:08 wasn't too impressed though at those guys getting so close!

Don't know if its just because it was shot from a helicopter but in the first part of the video the guy keeps saying how big the seas are but they don't look that big to me??

A lot of those boats are over 40 feet long if that helps!

Yes I realize that. Does he just mean big seas for powerboat racing or in general. I would consider something like this as big seas.

Yes he is talking about big seas to be dong those sorts of speeds - I don't see any planing boats in the youtube video - did I see a reference to force 10 at some point? Hardly leisure boating of any description type weather really - everything is relative isn't it?

I get your point. I think there is one of the boats in the video that is fully planing the 38ft version but not doing them speeds.
